Cremation and Euthanasia

Cremation and Euthanasia

We know just how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a beloved companion animal. When you’re ready, we can make your pet’s passing gentle and pain-free.


All animals are euthanized by a certified Animal Care Technician with a painless injection of sodium pentobarbital. Guardians are not present for the procedure.

The fees for euthanasia are as follows:

 Dog/Cat  $75
 Small Companion Animal  $20-50

This service is available during normal business hours. Please call 415.883.4621 for more information.
